Headset makers Astro Gaming is currently in partnership with Nintendo to develop an A10 headset for the Nintendo Switch. The upcoming headset will feature a design based on one of the Switch’s most famous titles, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Check it out below:
Besides the Breath of the Wild headset, Astro says that more are on the way including other Nintendo themed headsets, speaker tags, and some game accessories. Astro and Nintendo signed a multi-year partnership in April so we can expect tons of Nintendo merchandise from Astro. Here are some of the upcoming headset designs:
This one is designed after Super Mario Bros. 3:
And the original Legend of Zelda themed headset:
Another good thing about the partnership between Nintendo and Astro is that the Switch is finally getting a headset that is specifically optimized for the console. Currently, voice chat in the Switch still goes through a mobile app. However, the Breath of the Wild A10 headset will introduce full chat capability on the Switch “with a new discreet char cable,” according to a press release. In addition, the headset will include an omnidirectional mic and memory foam ear cushions.
Lastly, Astro hasn’t revealed any pricing details for the headset. However, a standard A10 goes for $59.99 and a themed one such as the Call of Duty headset is priced at $69.99.
